Sundays At Our House


Those that know us well, know that we are pretty much off limits on a Sunday.  It is the one day of the week where we come together as a family and stay home.  Sundays are pretty sacred to us.

The girls sleep in and I only recently discovered that once they wake up they have developed a routine of hanging out together in one or the other's bedroom and visiting.  I had no idea they had been doing this ever since we moved back into the house and I think it is the neatest thing that they do together.  Here I thought they were really sleeping in late.  It truly touches my heart.


While they sleep in I get up and begin my day making by a fresh pot of coffee and starting a big load of laundry.  I like to bake on Sunday mornings too.  It has become one of my favorite routines.  The smell of whatever I'm baking is usually what finally brings my girls downstairs.


From that point on we have a handful of chores to do, beds to be made up with clean sheets, laundry to fold and animals to feed.  We try to keep the chore list to a minimum.  Then we end up doing stuff together, like watching a movie, going for a walk, playing games or just reading.  I like to sew or work on a project and the girls will usually hang out with me while I do that.  It is just a time for us to be together as a family.


I make special, fancier meals on Sundays and we eat earlier in the day too.  I usually make a dessert as well.  We work together to get dinner on the table and to clean up afterward.  Then it is back to whatever it was we were doing.

Quite often we won't even get dressed and Sunday becomes a pajama day.  Another reason it is good not to have people coming over, ha, ha. 😆 


All too quickly, however, the day flies by and before we know it, it is already time to start getting our showers done and to climb into clean pajamas and clean beds for a good night's rest.

I love Sunday.  I wish there could be more of them each week.

  1. I feel so relaxed after reading this post! :)
    Sundays are special to us too. We try to make it a point to keep it low key and as restful as possible. I also make dinner early on Sundays and try to get household chores done by the afternoon so I have time to spend with my kiddos.
    I love how your girls are so close. The last few weeks my kids have been getting up early on non-school days to sneak downstairs to play video games together. haha.
    Your home looks so lovely and warm! I hope you and your precious young ladies have a wonderful rest of the week! :)

  2. What a nice post! It is wonderful how our kids can surprise us, isn't it. Though mine are now grown I am surprised at how frequently they talk/text/communicate with each other.
    Our Sundays are generally a mixed bag. After church we usually try to head home for a "getting ready for next week" day, which we try to have completed by 3 in the afternoon. Then we hang and read until dinner time, watch whatever series we are hooked on (Billions, right now) then read until bedtime.

  3. I don't especially like church but I do love the Sabbath as I can sleep and rest and do not work. I think it has saved my life. Nice post.

    It sounds like a perfect Sunday! We stay in our pajamas a lot on the weekend too. It's definitely our decompress day :)
